I decided that the glue alone was not strong enough to hold the deck down and bought some stainless steel screws to hold it on. Total cost $103 + previous costings149.85 + bung 2.50 = $255.35. Then there is the bolts for the outboard brackets $42.00 + $255.35 = $297.35. Two spoons from the tip to make washers $1= Total to this point $298.35. I have been given some paint to paint the hull so what I got is going to be the colour of the hull.
This boat building is costly for a free boat. I haven't factored in time at commercial rates which would be roughly 22 days x say $15 per hour x eight hours per day would equal say 22 x 15 x 8 = $ 2640
Then there is electricity fuel to get parts cost of car and insurances tools and there depreciation add say $100 insurance fuel say $100 tools say $100 use able things like sandpaper and saw blades especially when I hits a nail. This total = $300
Add to that administration charges, using the trailer as an example. Cost of article + 10 % and this would be.
$300 for fuel etc.
sub total $3038.35
Add administration charges $3038.35
grand total = $6076.70
